This article shows things about Africa's religion because they still practice Islam and Christianity on consistent bases.

 

Chloe and Devynne's curator insight, April 11, 2014 1:29 AM

 article is about Africa's religion. It mainly speaks about how the traditional religions of the area still widely thrive thepughout the inhabitants of the country. Even those who practice new religions often incorporate traditional practices.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:47 PM

Religion:  Religion in africa is different than some might see.  Christian and Islam are just among the minorities.  Traditional African Religion is much more than some give credit for.  10% of the population still practice this religion full time.  Their expressions are found in oral traditions.  They believe in a supreme being who created and ordered the world, but experienced as distant and unreachable.

Satellite Photos Show Ancient Saharan Fortresses of a Lost Empire | 80beats | Discover Magazine | Europe an Oceania | Scoop.it

New satellite images have revealed more than a hundred ancient fortified settlements still standing in the Sahara. The settlements, located in what today is southern Libya, were built by the Garamantes, a people who ruled much of the area for nearly a thousand years until their empire fragmented around 700 AD. Information about the Garamantes is relatively scarce: Other than the accounts of classical historians (who aren’t known for careful accuracy) and excavations of the Garamantian capital city in the 1960s, archaeologists haven’t had a lot to go on.

The youth of South Africa does not trust politicians, but who can blame them? I mean many of the politicians in our country get away with murder! So much corruption and nepotism, it makes one dizzy trying to keep up with each scandal. The article takes a look into the statistics - "four out of five younger South Africans do not trust politicians". I suppose this is going to worry many politicians because of possibly losing voters. But that's just the game of politics. - Mila

Giant robots harnessed to excavate the mines of the future

Giant robots harnessed to excavate the mines of the future | Europe an Oceania | Scoop.it

 

Somewhere deep in the Australian outback there are massive robots operating a mine. Each of them weighs 210 metric tons and has a voracious appetite for, er, carrying stuff. You see, the robots are dump trucks — and they could kick the crap out of Audi and Google's self-driving cars.

 

As part of Australia's mine of the future, the dump trucks make up the Autonomous Hauling System (AHS), and are capable of navigating their surroundings and delivering rock to on-site processing machinery. How they navigate their surroundings can be preset and altered by off-site human operators, similar to how military drones function...

Hobbit Returns to Find Middle Earth Has Become Expensive

Hobbit Returns to Find Middle Earth Has Become Expensive | Europe an Oceania | Scoop.it

In a fake cave in a Wellington suburb, tourists pose by a statue of Gandalf, a hero of the “Lord of the Rings” films that boosted New Zealand’s economy by more than $580 million. The country needs the wizard’s magic more than ever when he returns next month.

 

As the capital prepares to host the world premiere on Nov. 28 of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first part of a prequel to the Rings trilogy, New Zealand faces economic hurdles that weren’t there when the first movie from the series of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books opened 11 years ago.

 

The currency has doubled in value, hindering exports and deterring tourists that came in droves after the earlier films. In the capital’s business district, 15 percent of offices lie empty. A 45-minute flight south in Christchurch, the nation’s third-biggest city -- gateway to many of the movies’ locations - - is rebuilding its ruined center after two major earthquakes.

Andrew and Tom's insight:

Economic because this and many other series has pumped money into the New Zealand Economy. I read this book before the movie came out and I thought that they were really good. New Zealand was a great place to film these movies.
